Has it occurred to anyone that the public at large is actually voting with their dollars? If this isn’t a demonstration of exactly how far our representatives have strayed from representing the people. There are other voices out there. Please consider backing 1 Million Moms Against Gun Control. They are the voice of the people. Men and Woman who want their liberties left alone.
